Not really new media related but a thing that just puzzled me as a Dutchman. Why is Piet Mondriaan's surname always spelled with one a instead of the orginal two in Anglo Saxon countries? A swift research gave some partial answers. After a conflict in 1912 with his uncle Frits Mondriaan, who disagreed with Piet's abstraction, Mondriaan started to sign his paintings with Mondrian instead of Mondriaan. Probably this and because Mondriaan with one a (so Mondrian) is easier to pronounce in English is the cause that Mondriaan is nowadays almost worldwide spelled with one a. In the Netherlands however we still spell it with two a's and even the largest art funding foundation overhere is still called Mondriaan Foundation.
